I've tried so many different covers at night, but just when I think I've found something, dd wakes up wet. I use a nighttime bikini cut hemp cuddlebuin. I like this diaper, and it is not completely soaked by morning, but the covers leak, Here is what I have tried:<br><br>
Stacinator Wool-compression wicking-even super lanolized, tried several times<br><br>
Wooly dreams-same as Stacinator<br><br>
Stacinator So Simple-DD rolls to tummy, and wicks at tummy and legs<br><br>
ME Airflows-too low a rise in back, and leave marks<br><br>
Alexis featherlite pant- Too low in rise, leave marks<br><br>
Bummis pull-on pant-too low rise, and wick at legs<br><br>
Zippidy Snappers- wick at legs, but leave no marks<br><br>
Imse Vimse wool cover-compression, and gap at legs over nighttime diaper<br><br>
I really want something breathable. I loved my zippidy nylon pants until just recently dd seems to move too much at night, which causes the legs to wick. I just ordered a Aristocrat wool soaker to give wool one more try. I'm desperate. I can't and won't use disposables b/c they give dd rash, and if she poops(every morning) it just leaks right out!<br><br>
Please help!!!!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying">

We use either a Sugarpeas wool or Bizzy B Hive wool cover for night and almost never have leaks. Usually the only leaks we get is if DH doesn't point DS down!! Although the Bizzy B wool leaked at first, I lanolized it twice and now it's fine. The sugarpeas I have never lanolized, only washed in Eucalan. HTH!

the organic wool soaker from <a href="http://tinytush.com" target="_blank">tinytush.com</a> is working the best for us. We have had some SERIOUS leakage problems. The legs and the top foldover part are longer and higher than the Aristocrats. Although, we have had good luck with the Aristocrat as well. I would try the organic wool soaker though. Seems to be the better cover for preventing the pee from escaping out anywhere, if I HAD to choose between the two.<br>

Wow, I've tried a lot of the wool covers you've tried, Teagan, and haved also used the Disana (organic wool) extensively as well as the Aristocrat. Although the organic one does stay hugged closer to the thighs and waist and is longer in those areas, the bum area is a tad thinner than the Aristocrat and if you had compression with a Wooly Dream (mom and me?), then I doubt you'll make it through the night with the Disana. Possibly won't make it with an Aristocrat, either. You may need more diaper in there, hon. Maybe a hemp doubler would do the trick?

I see that you tried Stacinator and got wicking even with lanolizing. Could I ask what were you using to wash and lanolize with? Eucalan only contains 2% lanolin. That is rarely enough for heavy wetters.<br><br>
I'll give this some more thought. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

I did wash in Eucalan, but also lanolized w/ lasinoh. I did this twice, and let the cover dry for a week to make sure it was truely dry.<br><br>
As for the diaper, I use a special made hemp fleece cb w/ an extra thick deluxe hemp doubler. The diaper is usually only wet on the side she sleeps, but not drenched. It gets wet in the front or back depending on whether she sleeps on her stomach or back, and the legs are always pretty wet. I use to use Cricketts hemp fitteds w/ the doubler, plus a fleece topped hemp doubler. Those diapers were completely soaked. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">:

sometimes, i think using solid lanolin can be difficult. it can relodidify and float around in globs instead of soaking into the cover. heres what i do:<br><br>
i lanolize with a liquid lanolin. ive seen it at my local health food store. sometimes a pharmacy will have it, too. really, its not a liquid its more goopy in texture. (is goopy a word?) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Combine a teaspoon of it and a drop or 2 of eucalan or mild shampoo to very warm water. than add that to a sinkful of cool water. there will not be ay glops of resolidified lanolin to deal with. add your cover and let it soak (15 mins or longer). then drain your water.<br><br>
im still thinking what else could be giving you problems <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch">

I really like Windpro for night time. It doesn't have as much compression leaking as 300wt or less. And it is somewhat breathable. I've never had a leak in a Windpro fleece cover
